    Need advice re: litter box issues, dirty bum, and how to bond with new buns

    Update: they are using their boxes more often than not, now. One of them (maybe both, but I've only seen Blitz do it) is peeing near the door of the x-pen. She also stares at the door wistfully. I think she wants to explore. I also think she knows the litter boxes have something to do with it...

    Need advice re: litter box issues, dirty bum, and how to bond with new buns

    I got a new rug that doesn't smell like my previous bun. They have not pooped and peed as much on it, but they still do. As for them being fixed, I sure hope so! They are a male and female pair! In all seriousness, though, I've been assured by the rescue they are fixed. I think they were mostly...

    Need advice re: litter box issues, dirty bum, and how to bond with new buns

    Thank you. It is all old dry poop that was there when I got him Thursday. He's starting to warm up to me. Hopefully I can get him to let me clean it up soon.

    Need advice re: litter box issues, dirty bum, and how to bond with new buns

    I just posted about my new buns. I have some questions. Before I adopted them, I was told that they are resistant to litter box training. They are almost 3 (born 5-19-19). Both are fixed, but I don't know when. Both have used the box, but rarely. They both pee and poop all over their enclosure...

    Meet Blitz and Frosty

    My Groucho crossed the rainbow bridge to be with Bugsy and Buggs, his best buddies. I had promised I would adopt a bonded pair from a local rescue. So, I went to the rescue page and the bunnies that I noticed most had the same coloring as all three of my others. Only issue was that one has a...

    Groucho...

    It is so hard to say goodbye. On Tuesday, Groucho peed in the kitchen. He never does that. It was very red. I called the vet. They had no appointments until Monday. Because I was very worried, they said to bring him in the next day. I said I would after work, as I wouldn't have the car sooner...

    Hutch went to the rainbow bridge today

    I'm so sorry for your loss.

    My heart hurts

    My Buggs crossed the rainbow bridge yesterday. I adopted him 3.5 years ago, after losing my favorite bun. Soon after, I learned the shelter failed to tell me about an infection in his jaw. I got him x-rays and it was bad. He was given six months to live. I took him to the vet to have the abscess...

    Rabbit safe bedbug treatment?

    I just found out I have bedbugs. I've had them for months, apparently. How can I safely get rid of them? They are primarily in the couch, and my bus hang out around and under the couch. Is diatomaceous earth safe?

    I made my bunny scream

    Thank you for understanding and explaining. I appreciate it.

    I made my bunny scream

    Thank you. That is helpful. I've had him 6 years now and never had this happen. I definitely acted upset after. But, well, they should be used to that. As I said above, I'm an extremely emotional person.

    I made my bunny scream

    Wow. I don't know how I feel about this. Yes, it has good advice. But it is also mildly insulting. I am hoping you didn't mean it that way. FYI: I have high anxiety and bipolar disorder. I'm, therefor, an emotional person. I also have ptsd from an abusive marriage where "suck it up, it's...

    I made my bunny scream

    When they groom each other, they don't hurt each other. I've never heard a rabbit scream before, though I knew they could. I can't get the sound out of my head. I don't drink wine. Maybe I'll have my last couple edibles... I've given him plenty of treats in his little hiding place. Buggs, my...

    I feel so bad. I can't stop crying!

    I made my bunny scream

    He had a severely matted spot and I was trying to get it off of him. I tugged at it gently because I was afraid I'd cut him if I used scissors (it's happened before). Apparently I wasn't gentle enough. He started screaming. It was the worst sound I've ever heard because I knew I made my bunny...

    My rabbits are acting out of sorts. Please help!

    Update: So, the next day, before I headed out to the store, I gave them some pellets. They devoured them. I still got the medicine, but they haven't needed it. They are their usual feisty, hungry selves. I guess they just needed time.

    My rabbits are acting out of sorts. Please help!

    Thank you! I will try that and let you know how it goes. I can't get to the store until tomorrow afternoon. They are still drinking water. I think they'll be fine. I have a suspicion it was the lettuce. Anyway, your reply gives me some peace of mind. I won't be up all night worrying. At least...

    My rabbits are acting out of sorts. Please help!

    Hey, So, Buggs has been doing amazing. He and Groucho are getting along great and insisted on sharing a cage again. The abscess has been gone for a few months now. Anyway, I let them out of their cage for several hours every evening. During which, they run around, play, and enjoy a few...

    Moving halfway across the country. Travel tips?

    I had to keep them separate because of the infection in Buggs' jaw. But they did well, even drank some water on the trip. They love their new home. They got to be outside on leashes yesterday where there is timothy grass and a variety of flowers. They were excited once they figured out they...
